Chelsea are among a list of clubs that have been linked with Atalanta’s midfielder Franck Kessie.

According to the Daily Star, Chelsea have offered £21m, plus another £6m in add-ons for the 20-year-old, which was rejected.

Reports claim Antonio Conte is keen on landing the Ivory Coast international before the January transfer window closes and will let him remain on loan with Atalanta until the end of the season.

According to reports, Kessie is keen on joining Chelsea, but will not force through a move this month, while Atalanta are ready to hang on to the midfielder in the knowledge that his price will only increase by the summer.

Kessie was part of Ivory Coast’s Africa Cup of Nations campaign but has returned to Serie A, after their surprise group stage elimination.
